On Sunday Sept 14th (yes Sunday hours are back!) the library will host a multi-media program about the Trans Adirondack Route. Erik Schlimmer, founding member of Friends of the Trans-Adirondack Route, will be here to discuss the history of this cross Adirondack route and his group’s mission to maintain and promote its use. Erik is also the author of several books on hiking and the Adirondacks. The program is free and begins at 2pm.

Our second visit to the Waterford Harbor Farmer’s Market this summer will be an introduction to E-Books and E-Readers and how the library can help patrons access them for free from the library . Library Director Tim McDonough will be available to demonstrate how this technology works and how the library can help users get the most from their devices. So join us on Sunday Aug. 17 from 9-12pm and learn how e-books are changing the way people read!
On Sunday June 8th from 12:30-3:30pm, the library welcomes members of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society. They will be on hand to assist people in looking up information about their ancestors. Half hour sessions are available for registration in advance, as well as walk-ins. You do NOT need to be of Irish descent. Bring any information you already have along with your questions. Especially useful will be the names of parents and grandparents, their dates of birth and where they were born or lived. The volunteer researchers will do their best to find answers, which can sometimes be surprising! Please call the library at 237-0891 for additional information or to register.
We couldn’t think of a better photo exhibit to host in our space, which just happens to be a restored D&H Railroad Freight Depot. “Trains at Night” from William Gill offers a unique look at our railroad heritage and a glimpse into a world that most of us do not notice enough. Our opening reception will take place this Thursday from 6 to 7:30pm, and William will be available to answer questions and to talk about his photos. We are also hosting a display of D&H Railroad memorabilia from the collection of Edward Moulton. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.
